“We actually started writing ‘One Man Band’ immediately before we were supposed to be onstage one night,” says Matthew. “The intro music was playing—we had had the idea but it just kinda struck in that moment . . . we were supposed to be walking out onstage, but instead we were sitting there next to this big speaker singing [the chorus]. Then we came back to it later—I think probably a couple of weeks later—out on the road in a dressing room and we finished that song up. You never know when inspiration is going to hit.”

 

The group’s evolution informally influences “One Man Band,” a single that uses the arc of a music career as a metaphor for a long-term relationship.

Feel good hit makers Old Dominion return with another blast of romantic positivity with the new single, “One Man Band.” Take a listen!

 

The band’s frontman Matt Ramsey says that they wrote the song as a love song, but that it has a double meaning. Because it’s also about the kind of connection that Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers, Geoff Sprung and Brad Tursi have had with each other since first coming together in 2012.

One Man Band – Old Dominion

Been flying solo for so long
Nobody’s singing a harmony
Up there just me and my shadow
No base, no guitar, no tambourine

And I found you like a melody
You were singing in the same key as me
We had ’em dancing in the streets

I don’t wanna be a one man band
I don’t wanna be a rolling stone alone
Putting miles on a run-down van
Baby, we can take our own show on the road
I’ll lay down the beat, you’ll carry the tune
We’ll get tattoos, and we’ll trash hotel rooms
Baby, take my hand
I don’t wanna be a one man band
I wanna run down your wild dreams
And I wanna chase every high with you
Count every rip in these old jeans
We’ll never learn how to sing the blues

If I’m gonna be famous
Girl, I wanna be famous with you
We got our own little groove

I don’t wanna be a one man band
I don’t wanna be a rolling stone alone
Putting miles on a run-down van
Baby, we can take our own show on the road
I’ll lay down the beat, you’ll carry the tune
We’ll get tattoos, and we’ll trash hotel rooms
Baby, take my hand
‘Cause I don’t wanna be a one man band

When the spotlight goes cold, and the curtains come down
The chairs are all stacked, and there’s no one around
And nobody’s paying, we’ll still be playing
I don’t wanna be a one man band
I don’t wanna be a rolling stone alone
Putting miles on a run-down van
Baby, we can take our own show on the road
I’ll lay down the beat, you’ll carry the tune
We’ll get tattoos, and we’ll trash hotel rooms
Baby, take my hand
‘Cause I don’t wanna be a one man band

I don’t wanna be a one man band
